Easter Trilliums

Seven little trilliums all lined up in a row
Seven little trilliums all wondering where to go

All shiny white and new, like a beacon in the dark
Only blooming once a year in spring and in the park

It’s Easter time the earth proclaims, peace will reign today
Trilliums reflect the light that makes you want to pray

Pray for peace, hope, or God – take a moment to reflect
On kindness, laughter, joy-filled days, insights and respect

Trilliums may not discern but I know what they mean
Present at this time of year in order to be seen

No questions, expectation, desires do they seek
Their quiet gentle nature is down to earth and meek

Claiming their place amongst us they only look for sun
To light the way before them until their day is done

Seven little trilliums all lined up in a row
Seven little trilliums now knowing where to go
